It's a party for your butt!

Self Serve recently stocked its shelves with a toys that's a great introduction to anal play for men and women, and it’s only $30.

We call it the Disco Booty Party, because it’s pretty much a party for your butt, and it has a flashing color-changing light at the end. Some might find it gimmicky, but it also might help you find the desired hole in the dark.  The small light also warms the toy up slightly, and that's always a nice bonus.

It comes in a frosted purple, hard-plastic design with a matte coating, is 3/4 of an inch wide and 3 inches long. It has a flared base, because anything you put in your butt should have one, and a single-speed and function vibration. The toy has a slight angle and a bulb at the base, which helps your sphincter hold onto it, and it can gently stimulate a prostate. If the wearer is excited and properly lubed and warmed up, the sphincter muscles will contract which keeps the toy in place and the contractions feel great too because they bring blood to the area. 

The vibration can help relax the sphincter and other muscles in the area and will give sensation to the nerve endings in the anus as well as the genital area. It’s easy to operate because it has only one push button for on and off.

Since this toy has a smooth, velvety coating on the surface, this toy should only be shared if it has a condom over it.  It can be cleaned with warm water and a gentle soap.  The toy is phthalate-free.

Other tips for anal play include using lots of lubrication, relaxation and communication, and don’t forget the frontal stimulation! If you are enjoying anal play with a partner it’s important to check in with them before, during and after, to make sure they are comfortable and not in pain.   If anything hurts, you’re not doing it right!  We recommend using lots of lube and don’t forget about yours' or your partners’ sensitive bits in the front. Clitoral stimulation can help relax the other muscles near the genitals, which can make anal play more enjoyable, and same thing goes for a penis.
